Incoming scholars seek more than 'cool'

  • Follow Letters

"Cool" is not the environment that academic scholars at Georgia Health Sciences University are seeking. It is the congruence of three words.

Relevance: How does the mission of GHSU fit with my talents, goals and career future?

Potential: What is the infrastructure health of the school system that will offer my children the ground substance to excel in their career goals?

Environment: Is the community defined by quiet, well-manicured, safe homes, in reach of state-of-the-art markets, houses of worship and recreation?

In a phrase: Is the workplace and community generationally nurturing?

You forgot: "Run"- once you

You forgot: "Run"- once you graduate RUN RUN RUN to somewhere that isn't backwoods. Somewhere you feel safe and treated with respect.

I have found the public

I have found the public schools here very disappointing and way behind. My children are learning things here that they learned two grades ago when we lived in Maryland. We are looking into private schools for next year, I hope they will be better.

I don't find the community very nurturing towards outsiders either. If you've been here your whole life you are more likely to get support and help, the good old boy system is too deeply ingrained here. And since my family is largely agnostic, we don't get very good reception from the community because we don't go to church.

I do love being so close to the Augusta National, but that's only one week out of a year.

On a scale of 1-10, ten being the best, I give the CSRA a 4. They still have a lot of improvements to do.
